About the Stockroom at 230

Ooh I love a good industrial wedding venue, especially The Stockroom at 230! Located in the heart of Downtown Raleigh on Fayetteville Street, this venue is crazy convenient to anyone in Raleigh. The venue has such good bones, even before you add the décor! It has gorgeous exposed brick, a lattice ceiling with market lights, and even a chalk wall to personalize for your wedding day! It’s great for mid-size and smaller weddings, as it can seat between 50-175 guests with a dance floor at the reception. f you’re interested industrial wedding venues, you can check out another blog post of mine here.

The Glass Box: A Great Getting Ready Space

One of the best features of the Stockroom is the getting ready space just a few floors up—the Glass Box. The Glass Box is truly a wedding photographer’s dream, as it features floor to ceiling windows on three sides, letting in tons of natural light for photos! If you want to capture cute pajama pictures with your bridesmaids or a first look with them, this is the perfect space to do so! The Glass Box also features a balcony which is a popular spot for first looks and portraits. That’s exactly what Lindsey and Nathan did, and you can check out those photos below! I absolutely love the view of Downtown Raleigh that you get from the balcony.

Keeping it All in One Location

There is also a space for the guys to get ready between the Stockroom at 230 and the Glass Box, making it convenient to have every part of your wedding day happen in one spot! When you are planning your wedding, you have to keep in mind how much you want everyone to be traveling. This includes not only your wedding guests, but the wedding party as well. I’ve been to many weddings where the bride gets ready in one location, the groom in another. Then they travel to one location for a ceremony…and another for a reception. Let me tell you—that makes for a long day. Now I totally understand if you want to get married in a church, but if you’re open to just bringing your officiant to the venue, it is so much easier to arrive at one place in the morning and stay there all day! (Personally, my own church meets in an auditorium and doesn’t do even weddings on site!)

The Details

Okay, let’s getting back to Lindsey and Nathan’s wedding! I loved how they brought their own personal touch to the venue. There was plentiful hanging greenery and a unique ceremony centerpiece featuring orange and peach florals! The florals were curtesy of Bea Morad, who did an amazing job bringing it all together!

The autumn vibes continued with the cutest little cake, curtesy of the Cupcake Shoppe Bakery. They had one small cake to cut, and it was surrounded by a bunch of matching cupcakes. Each cupcake had a macaron on top! This is a great idea to make serving the cake quick and mess-free as the venue staff don’t have to cut a slice for every guest.

There were so many other personal touches to Lindsey and Nathan’s day, including a chalk wall featuring a drawing of a bride and groom fox (as Nathan’s last name is Fox), personalized Mr. and Mrs. masks, and custom liners to the groom and groomsmen’s jackets! You can see each of those details in the photos below.
